Stenhousemuir captain Andy Munro says he has been in constant dialogue with the PFA to try and keep his teammates informed with the latest developments amid the Covid-19 (cornavirus) crisis.

The defender spoke to Sky Sports about the impact the football shut down was having on part-time players who have been left in a state of limbo.

"It's very difficult," said Munro.

"There's a lot of grey areas at the moment and we're not really sure what we can and can't say.

"We're not too sure when the next game or training session is going to come.

"There's always a concern and it's not just part time players, it's all of Scottish football.

"We need to stick together and remain as positive as we can.

"I've been speaking to the PFA near enough every day.

"As club captain at Stenhousemuir I need to keep the players informed."

Munro, who works full-time as a fibre engineer for Openreach, says he likely will not be impacted financially by the football shut down but other part time player might not be so fortunate.

"Working full-time is a massive relief, I'm pretty much secure in the coming months with my work but there's a lot of people facing uncertainty.

"There will be players out there who depend on their part time wage from football to pay bills."
